Pregnancy Safe Products from Cocokind

Pregnancy Safe Products from Cocokind

Pregnancy safe beauty products can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Cocokind as of 1/16/2021. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Don’t See Your Product? Read This Before You Ask About It…

Please read the Pregnancy Beauty Guide intro first, where you will learn which products you actually need to worry about (spoiler alert, you don’t need to worry about all makeup or hair products). I will not review products that fall into the “don’t worry about it” categories. If you want to ask about a specific product, I require that you follow these guidelines for asking about pregnancy/nursing safety. You can also learn more about how to use these pregnancy safety lists. I will delete questions that don’t follow the guidelines or are rude.

    Hi there,

    I noticed that you put the cocokind spf as not safe for pregnancy due to licorice root but I didn’t see it in their list of ingredients. I’m not sure if they updated it but could you confirm if these ingredients are safe? Thank you!

      I just completed this review about a week ago, so it’s very up to date.
      The licorice root is the dipotassium glycyrrhizate.

    Hello,

    I’ve been reading that Bakuchiol is an okay retinol alternative during pregnancy, but I see you’ve listed the Cocokind resurfacing sleep mask as a no-go due to the Bakuchiol. Just wanted to confirm that is the case. Thanks!

    Thank you for this amazing guide and all the work you put into it! I used your information for my first pregnancy and am now back again while pregnant with #2.

    What is the deal with stearic acid? I see this pop up on various websites as “not pregnancy safe”. Do they mean pure stearic acid? It seems to be in a lot of creams and moisturizers I use (including the Cocokind Texture Smoothing Cream), so I’m wondering if I should be wary of it. You don’t have it listed as an ingredient you screen for and you’ve approved many products that contain it, but just wanted to specifically ask about it. Thank you!

    • 10.13.22
      Christine said:

      Stearic acid is a fatty acid, not an “acid”. I have no idea why they would say it isn’t safe.

        Emilia said:

        Thank you so much for the quick response. That calms my fears! It might be a “consider the source” issue. I know how big of an unfiltered mess the internet can be!

        Thank you again!

        *In case you wanted to see one place where I saw this info: https://beminimalist.co/blogs/skin-care/skincare-during-pregnancy-and-breastfeeding

        (Text pasted from that page):
        According to the US Cosmetic Database, stearic acid is classified as a “low to moderate hazard ingredient.”

        The studies conducted so far sharply point out that:

        The acid may lead to toxins in the brain and adversely affect the nervous system.

        A similar build-up of toxins may take place in the other organs.

        It can affect the respiratory system as well.

        It even has the potential to be a carcinogen.

        It causes skin irritation (especially if one has sensitive skin or is allergic to the ingredient).

        Even with small doses of the element, side effects have been observed.
        It forms a part of the emollients and moisturizers mainly.

        Dermatologists advise limiting the use of stearic acid during pregnancy.
